The working women farm
[Site description appears on separate sign] The working women farm
A workers farm was established here in 1923, where the pioneers were trained to work in agriculture. It was established by the Workers Council (later NAMAT), and was run by Leah Miron-Katzenelson along with eight other workers.
In the early years, the pioneers lived in tents, in harsh conditions, and would bring water in buckets from Wadi Musrara, which is the Ayalon River, to irrigate the animals and plants. In 1926, the construction of the permanent building for the workers was completed, and during the 1930s, additional permanent buildings were built on the site. In the peak years of the workers farm, it had many branches of the farm: a barn, a dairy, a chicken coop, a hive, a vegetable garden, a nursery and an orchard.
The workers farm closed in the 1950s, and became an Ulpan for learning Hebrew.
